Rainbow Cupcakes

Today we're getting together for my niece's birthday, so my boys are getting all amped up to see all of their cousins today.  This year she has requested chocolate cupcakes with vanilla while I'm finishing those up, I thought I'd share this photo of the cupcakes I made for her birthday last year (before I started blogging).  What little girl doesn't love rainbows?  Ok.....I'm obviously not a little girl anymore, and I still love rainbows!!  

These cupcakes came out beautifully, and are not hard at all, but will take a little patience to put them all together.  You'll make your cupcake batter, and then divide up the batter into several bowls (the number of bowls you need depends on how many colors you want to have).  Then it's time to break out the gel food coloring!  My hands looked insanely crazy when this part was done, since no matter how careful I am, I always get stuff all over me!  I went with red, orange, yellow, green, and blue.  I could have thrown in purple too, but in all honesty, I just couldn't get myself to do one more color.  Once you get all of your batter to the color and intensity that you like, you're going to start layering the batter in the cupcake liners. Put a spoonful of a color in the liner, spread it out, then add a spoonful of another color, spread it out, and on and on until all the colors are used.  Voila!

Happy Birthday Katrina!!
